A quirky mix of cultural institutions in the state capital of NRW

Written by Garry and last edited by Garry on


The collection of museums and historical attractions in Düsseldorf is surprisingly diverse and visits to these magnificent institutions is often surprising.

The museums of the city of Düsseldorf impress with their well structured, comprehensible displays and sometimes striking locations and architecture. They include the Stadtmuseum, Film Museum, Hetjens Museum of Ceramics and others. Benrath Palace Museum with it’s beautiful gardens has been included on the UNESCO World Heritage List and the Jägerhof stately home hosting the Goethe Museum are both magnificent baroque examples.

Economic Development Düsseldorf

With a combination of pro-business policies, low costs and a skilled workforce, Düsseldorf is the perfect location for investors. The Office of Economic Development offer "plug and play" services while expats form an integral part of a population that has grown by 22,000 over the past few years.

Ferris Wheel

The "Wheel of Vision" is an impressive structure placed on the Burgplatz next to both the Rhine promenade and the old town (Altstadt). Forty two capsules offer spectacular views across the river, the town as well as the Christmas markets and decorations during the dark evening hours.


Breuninger inspires with a magnificent shopping experience in their stunning downtown location between Königsallee and Hofgarten. Fashion, accessories, shoes, beauty and cuisine are offered with friendly, professional service across a sales area of over 15,000 square metres in the impressive Kö-Bogen.
